    My Trip Report

    [​IMG]

    I arrived in Vegas this morning to be taken out of my box and placed on another box.

    I'm glad I'm inside and not outside. Stupid rain.

    There is this black and white creature smelling me... [​IMG]

    I think he realizes I am of no harm.

    My new owner says we are going to a hotel where there are plenty of other monkeys.

    Hes going to fit right in at SLS, glad he made it on time! Have you stayed there before Plee? Curious to see how you like them, there are so many mixed review out there

    I have stayed there several times. I enjoy eating at the restaurants there with the exception of Ku Noodle and the buffet (which is now closed). I do come from LA where all of the restaurants have local presence though. The beds are very comfy, but you can tell the hotel has been refurbished and not built from the ground up. There are no bathtubs unless you have the penthouse suite. I have fun at Life because it isn't super crowded like Hakkasan or Marquee. It definitely isn't a good place for gamblers though. Only 1 double deck game which is low limit. But, my host is a good dude and always takes care of me. They are moving the high limit to a new area very soon. I'm not sure if that is a good thing yet.

    Awesome! Great that he made it in for the weekend too!

    I didn't mind the SLS, my sis really liked it. I initially liked the smell there, but eventually started to get sick of it, haha.

    Have fun this weekend and keep us posted of your wins!

    Looking forward to the report, plee...hopefully this monkey doesn't end up on a milk carton like his friend. Best of luck!

    Haha. Thanks. The SLS staff seems to think it's funny that I am sitting him down in the seat next to me while I play.

    So far, things have been grim. UTH was a loser (damn pocket aces tricked me into thinking o would at least push) and was grinding away at a blackjack table until the dealer pulled four 21s out of 5 hands. Terrible.

    Damn that sucks...maybe you and little plee need a shot or two to get the juices flowing.

    Hows the vibe at SLS?
